Product Description:

Make your own small version of a carnival claw game! This kit from Klutz includes plastic pulleys and a claw, while the housing is made from colorful, heavy card stock and acetate windows. The sides of the box measure about 6.5” x 7.5”. The step-by-step instruction book shows you how to play, with illustrations and clear narration. There are only 3 little capsules for you to put prizes in. I liked learning the names of all the parts, like the gantry, and you will learn a lot about pulleys! There is even a page for troubleshooting. Several pages of ideas are included in the back of the book to help players make prizes and add challenge. ~Sara

Publisher Description:

Learn all about the physics of pulleys and the real-life applications of claws. Additional activities in the instructional book allow aspiring engineers to create fun twists on this arcade challenge--such as a magnetic mover and drawing tool.

Category Description for Klutz Maker Labs:

While these maker kits will not teach you how to weld or use a CNC machine, you will make some cool stuff and learn about basic wiring, electronics, gravity feed systems, and pneumatic power. Once again Klutz comes through with fun kits that teach real world skills. Projects are exciting, instructions are large-format and clearly written, and almost everything you need is in the box. The Wired Remote Race Car kit helps us build a chipboard craft car that moves in four directions, teaching about wiring and switches. Circuit Games takes electronics a step farther; builders will use LEDs and buzzers to construct a quiz show board used to play 5 separate games. The Gumball Machine dispenses real gumballs (not included) down customizable ramps, bumpers and guides. The Air Blast Cannon is a portable, workable air-powered cannon that fires missiles at targets. Maybe after these you will be ready to tackle that CNC machine!

Poor quality
Although the pulley system was clever, the stability of the structure was terrible. The material, called "chipboard" I think, was like thin cardboard or poster board, and it led to a very insubstantial result. The claw controls were poor - requiring constant retying It was embarrassing to have given this as a gift.
